Well, it's Fall planting time down here in North Texas (already). The long Labor Day weekend offered me plenty of time to put in some of my Fall Victory Garden seeds. "What did you put in?" you might be asking. First of all, we have a late enough first frost date that we can get a second planting in of crops we all planted in Spring/Early Summer. In this case it was my most reliable and productive bush green bean variety, Blue Lake.

The other crops already started were: carrots, three types of Chinese pai tsai greens, Swiss chard and four types of lettuce. Garlic, radishes, and spinach will take the stage near the end of the month.

This was my first real attempt at shooting video of me in action in the garden. I think it turned out well. I'm looking forward to doing more, now that most of the extreme oppressive Texas heat is behind us. Enjoy!

After you try it, show it off to other members in the
